In a big room that you see Grodus in often, go to his office and youll find a card key. Go to the west door to find the last card key then go to the east door, a thwomp and he gives you a quiz, pass it and he gives you an elevator key go to the locked elevator and unlock it go to the third level and three money machine type things are there, put the three keys in there and there is a factory maze, you see a blue switch that you cant get to, use Bobbery to blow it up and the conveyor belt starts working go through the fence and use Vivian to go under the fence and go through a pipe to go to the other side of a fencing complex well thats what it looked like. You have to find a switch that makes stairs to the door. You have to get to that door and once you do you have to have a blue card key to open the door. You open the door and Lord Crump is waiting for you. He gets into the new and improved Magnus Von Grapple 2.0!! You have to defeat him once you do out of the smoking rubble of Magnus Von Grapple 2.0 the Crystal Star appears and its called the [Crystal Star] ironic huh. So after that TEC activated a detonator thats going to blow up the X-naut Fortress but he leaves enough power for you to use the teleporter to Rougeport. Go to the Thousand-Year Door and stand on the pedestal for the last time. Once you do the special effects happen but this time cracks appear around the door and it opens and a dark portal appears to the Palace of Shadow climb into it. Before you go in the door go get lots of money and spend it on Ultra shrooms in the Rougeport Sewers Item Shop IX Chapter 8 This palace is full of puzzles and traps. The first room isnt much just big and empty. The second one is a big down staircase and three Swooplas. The next one is a three level corridor with about seven enemies. The next one has two flame puzzles the first one is five flames in a row spinning around in a circle the middle has a Phantom Ember and 10 flames spinning. The second puzzle has five flames in a row coming at you when theyre on the ground you have to jump over them, when theyre in the air you need to use Vivian to disappear under them. The next room has a spike puzzle you have to walk past while getting the badge and defeating the Swooplas. The next room has another three level corridor just like the one you saw earlier. The next one is the biggest room in the Palace of Shadow theres two chain chomps and when you get to the far west of the room, youll be challenged to a battle by Beldam, Marilyn and Professor Frankly?!? Just kidding the Professor turns into Doopliss. You defeat them and go to the west door and you see a dragon that looks like Hooktail but its black and its not Hooktail its Gloomtail, and Hooktail is his sister??! You defeat him and your prize is a star stone, go back to the chomp head things throw Bobbery in both of them and a pipe appears. Go in the pipe and hit the switches on the other sides and two boat panels appear, go on the panel to get to the building in the north of the screen. Go to the top of the building and put the star stone in the star shaped hole then there are eight pedestals with keyholes you have to find the keys. Go into the doors in the last two floors and solve the eight riddles the riddles are on billboards in the wall. Go back to the pedestals and put a key in each keyhole and the orb thing gets some rings and a staircase appears where Gloomtail was. Go down the staircase and into the door in the wall climb the stairs and use yoshi to float to the door. Go in the door and use Koopss stay ability to hit the switch get to the big gap and hit the switch. Go jump over the platform and go into the door. Then a you see a green block in the east use yoshi to float across the gap and fall down the second gap hit the switch and get on the purple block quickly then use yoshi again to float to a hole in the wall, turn into your tube form and jump over the gap. Go to the door and open it and a trap appears you have to spring jump to a pipe above the first yellow line climb it to the end. Go to the second yellow line spring jump to the pipe and climb to the end. Go in the door and go up the stairs throw Bobbery to the switch in the gap and a temporarily platform appears. Jump to the platform and on the other side but, be careful theres a Chain Chomp when you get past the chain chomp you see stars engraved in the wall, remember them. Go to the wheel and use yoshi to float to the bottom platform and use Koops to get the key. Jump down and go to the locked door when you get there you see seven switches and stars above them, the switches light up the stars make the stars look like the stars you saw earlier. When you do that the wheel starts moving, go on the wheel to get to the other side, go to the door and you see a boarded hole, break it and you see a door. Go through it and you see a trap, the trap is a narrow path you have to pass it you see a door and when you pass it you see a plane panel fly to the door on the other side. Go through the door and you see a giant corridor. Go through the door on the other side (you probably wont think youll lose because of the ultra shrooms you bought, right?) and you see Grodus on a throne. He told you his plot and you fight him hints: He has four Grodus Xs to start with and they attack and protect him just like the Yuxs. Defeat him and he shows he has Peach and he throws lightning on you (dont worry it doesnt hurt your HP) then Bowser lands on him and he sees Peach and you and he wants a battle. Hints: Kammy Koopa protects Bowser, you have to defeat Kammy Koopa and Bowser, you have to use your ultra shrooms in this battle. Defeat him and Grodus escapes with Peach into a secret passageway, follow him and when you get there you see Peach in front of a crypt. Grodus awakens The Shadow Queen and when she awakens all of Mushroom kingdom gets a quake and the sky turns dark. The Shadow Queen possesses Peach and she destroys Grodus but, leaves his head, then the Shadow Sirens and Doopliss appear and theyre her servants. Then she spys you and you battle her in her human form hints: shell once be unhurtable ande you have to use ultra shrooms and jamming jellies. She then see she is weak and turns herself into her real form then you cant hurt her. Then the Crystal Stars go to the town they have been found in and deliver the peoples wishes and positive energy to the room youre in. Then Peachs spirit brings your stats to the max and you can hurt her, defeat her and Peach turns back to normal. Then you go back to Rougeport waiting for your boat to bring you back home and all of your partners tell you their good-byes and what theyre going to do with their lives.
